Pennsylvania lawmakers to consider self-driving regulations this spring

Pennsylvania lawmakers could take up legislation aimed at regulating autonomous vehicles in the coming months.

State Sen. Randy Vulakovich, a Republican from Glenshaw who sits on the Senate Transportation Committee, said Wednesday that he has been assured by the committee’s chair that it will consider legislation this spring.

“Public safety and liability are at the forefront of our ongoing deliberations, and we will continue to evaluate the most effective measures to codify the testing of autonomous vehicles,” Vulakovich said in a statement sent to the Tribune-Review.
